Question: I have this rash that is very irritating and continues to itch. I do scratch it and it will fester up. this rash started on my lower left leg, on the outside of my calf. The rash has moved to my right leg, my left back of my hand, and on the right lower arm and elbow. I have been taking Benadryl and using cortisone cream, that will minimize the rash but will not get rid of it. This started two years ago and continues to spread. I did try antifungal cream and that did not help at all.
when I scratch, it will fester up and produce a clear fluid.
